Inclement Weather Information

When there’s a weather emergency, all current students, faculty, and staff automatically receive a Rave Alert at their MTSU email addresses.

MTSU students, faculty and staff who also want to receive text and/or voice alert messages can update their preferences at any time.

WGNS-AM 1450 or FM 100.5 WSMV-TV (Channel 4)

Student Class Attendance

Student class attendance during inclement weather is included in MTSU’s current “Blue Raider Planner and Handbook.” It explains on page 26 that students shall not be penalized for absences … in situations where the university’s policy on inclement weather is applicable”. There’s more information on pages 54 and 55 of the handbook, but in short, if hazardous weather prevents class attendance, students should advise their professors ASAP and arrange to make up any assignments.

If MTSU cancels or delays classes because of inclement weather, the announcement applies to all classes, credit and noncredit. University offices will be open unless the weather announcement specifically says they’ll be closed. The university will announce closings or delays caused by overnight weather changes as early as possible the following day.

Ann Campbell Early Learning Center (ACE)

The Ann Campbell Early Learning Center, MTSU’s early intervention community preschool, follows the university’s weather policy. View their website and Facebook page for more information.

MTSU Tornado Siren Tests

MTSU tests its tornado sirens monthly to ensure proper operation during tornado warnings and other emergency alerts.
